Adventures Of Teddy Essay

980 words - 4 pages

Throughout the course, we looked at animation films that essentially perform the story rather than just tell the story. We also looked at the history of animation and how it developed throughout time. As technology progressed, the techniques used to create an animation film improved. Animation uniquely captures fantasy worlds and engages world history by using traditional hand drawn and CGI techniques.

My stop-motion film is about the illusion of life created through the way children as well as adults personify inanimate objects.

However, I also used a little bit of computer generated imaging when I added the scrapbook theme in the beginning of the video. Teddy bears evoke a sense of gratification and comfort that you cannot find elsewhere. From a very young age, it is human nature to crave these feelings of warmth, coziness, and well-being. The animation technique communicated this perspective of enchantment in lifeless objects that create a sort of comfort in everyone’s lives. Teddy bears are stationary objects, but are able to ascribe human emotions and characteristics. Teddy bears are usually the first best friend of any child, so it holds a special...
